Baby Album Part 2 | Project Life

I love this baby book! As each month I add to it, it tells a story. I can pour my heart into the journaling and add all the millstones that have happened throughout the year. I am so excited to complete this album by her 1st birthday coming soon. I know one day she will look back through it and enjoy it as much as I do right now.

These are my most resent month pages. I plan to go back and add in months 1-7, but for now this is most fresh to me. I love these pages. Each one came together easily. The cards are perfect and fit my photos well. I have decided since I started this album, that I want it to be completely about her. I want it to be focus on her photos. The relationship type photos of her and Ruger etc will be in our yearly album.

This mini accordion album is easy to create using just tags, glue, and paper. I love the embroidery tags from Amy Tan's collection Cut & Paste. The Thickers and sticker is from Plus One collection both available. You can check out the video below to watch how I created this project.

February | Project Life 2014

 Project Life by Becky Higgins Core Kit - Jade Edition
Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages - Design A
I like more photos than Project Life Cards, if you haven't noticed. The cards are the perfect complement to photos. And I am not a great journal-er. I can add more journaling when it is printed on with my computer's printer than when I write on the cards. That is what I did this week with the journaling.

I love Polka Dot Party!! It has the perfect soft colors of blue that was perfect for these snow day photos. Once again I added more photos and less cards with a lot of journaling with printed text.

January | Project Life 2014

Project Life is a wonderful way to capture and share all the photos and memories that happen in our lives. I love that I can take a bunch of photos and put them in albums simply with little effort and time. I will be sharing my pages this year here on my blog.

This years title page was inspired by the 2x2 squares that others have embraced this year. I used the HSN kit Just Add Color which is not available at this time, but is available in the digital Project Life shop. The flora card is from Polka Dot Party Mini Kit. I added little embellishments to the pockets and backstitched them inside to keep them from falling out. I am pleased with the title page.

The first week of my project life. I took a lot of photos during this week. I couldn't include everything (lesson learned=don't take too many photos). My base for most of my 2014 layouts will be mostly Project Life by Becky Higgins Core Kit - Jade Edition, though I plan to use many different kits. One card is from Project Life Dear Lizzy - Polka Dot Party - Mini Kit.

Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages - Big Pack of Design A (60 Pages) and Project Life by Becky Higgins Core Kit - Jade Edition. I like using a mix of handwriting and printed text. If I am running low on time I may just hand write in my journaling depending on time.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my 2014 Project Life for January. I have many more to share eventaully. You can find out more about Project Life at

January | American Crafts

Valentine's Day is so close. This photo is from last year's Valentine's Day photo shoot of my son. I love these photos. So much so that I am thinking of creating another layout with the other photos. I used the banner from the xoxo AC collection that is no longer available. The other products are from the Polka Dot Party and Cut & Paste (American Crafts).
Be Mine by Erin Stewart
I used the frame paper and cut out the center of each frame to create this layout. The photos were from our family photo shoot this winter. I loved all the photos and I wanted a page that I could display multiple photos. I really like the way this layout turned out. Supplies are from Dear Lizzy's Polka Dot Party

this is us by Erin Stewart

My project for this month was 6x6 paper pads. I truly like 6x6 paper pads. I use them more than 12x12. The patterns are smaller and easier to cut up on layouts. I cut each 6x6 into strips and adhered them to the page to create the layered strips. Then added photo and embellishments. Supplies used Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party.
the best by Erin Stewart

This photo is a summer photo that I love of my R. I made the background by adding 4 6x6 papers adhered to a 12x12 piece of white cardstock. Then added another 6x6 paper in the center and added layers of paper and embellishments. Supplies from American Crafts Cut & Paste and Polka Dot Party.
